Thanks again, Todd. I'm curious as to what "The Terrapin" is all about, but all I can do for now is cross my fingers and hope that no one has beaten me to the book. Now, THAT is suspenseful. *laughs*

I've yet to read Highsmith, though I have a copy of The Talented Mr. Ripley here, bundled with several other novels in the two-volume Library of America Crime Novels set. Perhaps when I finish The Night has a Thousand Eyes, I'll get cracking on I Married a Dead Man before I get to Ripley.

I also found more details on A Century of British Mystery and Suspense, that other anthology I was looking for. It's a 2000 anthology edited and introduced by Anne Perry and was published by The Mystery Guild . No one got a copy of that here?
